    Well before I got into fully playing Wolf3d mods, I was looking for Wolf3d with the added weapons of a rocket launcher and flamethrower, which is the Jaguar version of Wolf3d.

    End of Destiny was the first mod I played that had a rocket launcher, followed by Eisenritter and then Coming of the Storm.

    So in a way, projectile weapons are my favorite. Switch activated walls is unique and portable medkits too. Basically EoD was my first true inspiration of returning to the good ol' 90s games and not so much Wolfendoom and Spear Resurrection (though it is very good too).

    Ambient sounds makes the environment of levels much more realistic too.

    Frankly, I never knew what paralaxed skies even means. I think doom has it?

    Neither did I, Wizzie, but yeah Doom has parallax skies. If you use it correctly to match the environment of the mod, it makes it more unique.

    Well...it's easier to demonstrate than to explain....it's basically sky that is displayed as background you can't get closer to, representing something really far relatively to actual place you can visit in a level, just like far mountains relative to near-road trees when you travel on car or train.
    It's not part of texture distance scaling. Represents far objects, usually sky, mountains.......

    Was first used in games such as "Duke Nukem 1/2/3", car games like "Lotus III - Ultimate Challenge"...only later 3D games adopted it, starting from Doom, ROTT and such....

    Now here's the next question and I'm sure it was discussed already. Is there a way to even change the settings of the parallax skies in a level? Like the closer you get to a destination (endtrigger), the image(s) come closer to view?

    On my vote I mostly referred to features I can't imagine making "my" Wolf3D mod without.
    Also voted for medkits, as I hate health backtracking Smile

    LOL forget portable medkits! If anyone wants to make fantasy type Wolf3d game, why not make a Pacman ghost-like enemy accompany you and GRANT you health instead of killing you?

    It's portable health ON THE GO!

    oh yeah can't forget breakable columns and explodable barrels, though they can be easily manipulated.

    Anyone try making breakable WALLS?

    Frankly, it might as well be a static object that looks just like a wall at that point.

    I remember that demo that was associated with Chaosedit, looked so cool.

    Problem is, can the wall code to prevent walls from rotating be done in static objects as well?

    I'm no coder, but I think with enough time and effort, any can basically be done. You can end up coding so much, you change the wolf3d engine entirely, no? (Of course, that would require an insane amount of time.)

    But forgetting that, I have not seen enough mods with reloading done...

    Reloading weapons you mean. People hellbent on setting records aren't always on par with that idea since reloading weapons affect your speed and therefore time to beat the level.

    Just change the par times. I think reloading and some elements from WNE adds some flavor, more than just spamming "fire" with the fastest firing weapon. The Chaingun from the latest Raycast mod reminded me of SOD Reloaded. Warmup is too slow and fires too slowly to really make an impact. I want weapons to really stand out, so that each weapon has a use. I can just as easily kill all of the bosses with a MP40 in the mod, the chaingun was unnessesary. Add some special limitations, reloading time, clip size, jam chance...

    A sniper in many wolf3d mods is basically a slow firing pistol that does high damage. The damage falloff over distances is just like other weapons. Etc, etc.

    Of course I can, I just feel some elements are worthwhile in other mods. That way, no idiot can wave their arms and said we've coded anything we could want.
